Chris Paul and Blake Griffin Connect on Back-to-Back Windmill Alley-Oop Dunks

The Clippers and Sixers squared off on Sunday night, and Philadelphia probably should’ve just forfeited before the game even tipped off. The team found itself down 46-15 after just one quarter of play, and lost the game by an embarrassing 45-point margin, a new franchise record for the Clipshow.

But it was what the Clippers did in the second quarter which really brought the crowd at the Staples Center to life.

Following a turnover, Paul led a fast break down the floor and flipped the ball off the backboard. Griffin completed the alley-oop like athletic big men do—with a windmill dunk.

But they weren’t done. Roughly fifteen seconds later, the sloppy Sixers turned the ball over yet again, and the duo made them pay. With a four-on-two advantage, we all knew this one wasn’t going to end well for Philly.

It didn’t. Griffin hit Paul with a behind-the-back pass early on the break, and then Paul tossed an underhanded lob from just outside the three-point arc in return. Griffin caught it, and once again went with the windmill approach to slam it home.

Two back-to-back dunks in 27 seconds—Lob City was rocking last night.
